Store Profile: Harry Lehmann perfumery – a Berlin legend

Harry Lehmann is a true Berlin institution. And my current Mintel Cityscape article. The company was founded in 1926 by the eponymous Berlin perfumer who came up with the following retail concept: sell high quality fragrances by weight, let customers bring their own bottles and combine all of this with affordable prices.

Niche Parfum & Showroom – Art and indie fragrances in Prenzlauer Berg

Earlier this week I visited Niche (store website), a brand new art-and-perfume store in Rykestraße 16. Artist Chris Gräfensteiner opened her fragrance/showroom in December; she sells her own artwork, fragrances from L’Artisan Parfumeur and Six Scents and Berlin accessories label Wanawake. A beautiful store and a really cool retail concept; Niche will also be my next Mintel article.
